Obama: Bibi is a Pain in the... New book quotes the American president as expressing

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama are not known to have had a good relationship, but the American president seems to have taken it a bit too far.

In a new book that was released Tuesday, Obama is quoted as expressing what he really thinks about Netanyahu during his 2012 presidential campaign.

According to the book, “Double Down,” Obama said that "We all know Bibi Netanyahu is a pain in the a**" when discussing the conflict between the Israelis and the Arabs.

"Double Down" was written by MSNBC correspondents Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and it reveals behind-the-scenes political stories from the American presidential race in 2012.

The quote about Netanyahu by Obama, which was reportedly made during a meeting between the President and his aides a year before the elections, is the only time Israel is mentioned in the book.

Relations between Obama and Netanyahu were strained during Obama's first term, with supporters of Obama accusing Netanyahu of interfering in the U.S. election in favor of Obama's rival, Mitt Romney. Supporters of Netanyahu, meanwhile, accused Obama of trying to keep Netanyahu from being reelected last January.

Isn't MSNBC antisemitic? Maybe the quote's in the book because the writers agree with it... Do you know? I don't...

Apparently Bath House Barry, the chickenhawk from Nairobi, doesn’t know what happens to evildoers who mess with God’s People.

Besides being one heck of a statesman, I have always found Bibi a sexy guy. OK flame away but I know for a fact that I am not the only woman that thinks that.

It is crystal clear as spelled out in the Bible but he either thinks it is not true or he doesn’t care. Either way, he will be dealt with.

"6. Keeps mentioning that Israel is an ally, and I shouldn’t wipe my ass on Israeli flag toilet paper anymore. But it’s so soft and cushiony. That other brand hurts my ass."

------------------------------->

Let's turn it around.

Well, B. Hussein O., what if Israel were US ally (what if, Hussein...!) and US needed Israeli protection, or dire assistance for survival, and Netanyahu was recorded saying you were a pain in the ass.

I'd like to know your response, Mr. Big Britches. Just remember who you insult on your way up when you are on the way down, so to speak.

";-) Bibi speaks more elegant and cogent English than the Obamanoid."

True - my nephews, ages 11 and 13 speak more elegantly - with a far more cogent use of the English language than B. Hussein O.

BHO lowers the bar again.

You are correct - you are not the only woman who thinks that!

I was let down when I heard he had had a sexual indiscretion. Bummer.

Still, he is one sexy fellow. Maybe that contributed to the indiscretion - being like a rock star in the political arena. Netanyahu groupies everywhere.

Not excusing him - just excusing him. <8^)
